Ash-Sharh / The Consolation
Revelation: Meccan
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ (1) Have We not expanded thee thy breast?-
وَوَضَعْنَا عَنكَ وِزْرَكَ (2) And removed from thee thy burden
الَّذِي أَنقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ (3) The which did gall thy back?-
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ (4) And raised high the esteem (in which) thou (art held)?
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (5) So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief:
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (6) Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.
فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانصَبْ (7) Therefore, when thou art free (from thine immediate task), still labour hard,
وَإِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَارْغَب (8) And to thy Lord turn (all) thy attention.
